  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  

    The Mirador Roc del Quer is an extended platform out into the valley with a sculpture of a bronze man sitting on the end of a girder.  Art and engineering combine to make a natural and man made spectacle.

    You will have seen it high up above Canillo village if you staying there or skiing there.

    Perfect for a morning or afternoon stroll for young and old: 5/10 mins walk from the car park - get a fantastic view of the Canillo valley, or alternatively double-check you still get vertigo.

    Certainly open in the summer; check access in winter - the mayor of canillo pronounced that it would be open in winter too, at the opening ceremony - but best to check with these things;  heavy snowfall will block the road and access path for sure.

  • Getting there? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  

    Look for the sign for the Mirador "Viewpoint" in Canillo town on the roundabout for the CS240 to Ordino near the Total petrol station - if it is green "Obert"; it means it is accessible (sometimes the road is closed due to snow), then you good to go.  Not on the Google streetview yet but is here.

    Often the CS240 is closed further up, and you may see a "closed" signal further up - this is because the road goes further up and over the mountain to the North Valley and the village of Ordino.

    You should drive up, or be prepared for a long hike.  There is a sign at the top for a path to the village so it must be possible to walk it.

    The road climbs up the valley side with several hairpin turns and an elevated valley - beautiful.

    You will see the car park on the left hand side.  Most often (Spanish-style) if it is not too busy people will just park nearer the entrance on the main road; there are a few spots closer to the path if you fancy risking it.

     

    • Path sign at the top indicating a walking route to the village.
    • Sign with open/closed indicator in Canillo village by the roundabout.
    • Spectacular drive up to the installation
  • Getting around? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  

    There is a 5metre wide earth track from the main road to the platform that extends out into the valley. It is about 500 metres from the road. It is a little bumpy in places, has drainage channels and has rocky parts; this might affect those who have difficulty walking or on wheeled transport like child buggies.

    If it is still icy or snowy in parts this can be a bit treacherous too - watch out for melted snow/ice and shadows from the sun which would make the terrain very slippy.

  • What can you see and do? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  

    When you arrive at the road end there is a pretty impressive art installation of wooden trunks that are grey, dry and weather-worn from the blasting sun and cold. They look like giant totem-poles, but are actually a commemoration of the 25 years of the Andorra Social Security System (CASS)!

    As you walk down toward the main installation there are benches to rest on and take in the views, and bronze picture-frame installations with empty panels; where you can pose or just capture the beauty of the mountains.

    The main installation is breathtaking, and features glass panels in the floor; just a few and little bit dirty and scratched, but who cares; you can look down by the side of it, or over the end. It extends maybe 15m straight into the valley.

    At then end sits a huge bronze man in relaxed-pose dangling his feet off the end of the structure contemplating the view and the nature he can see before him.

    • Towering trunks artwork
    • Frame the beauty
    • Way too relaxed to be in that precarious position!
  • Car Parking You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  

    There is a large car park around 100m from the access point without any sidewalk. People do just walk on the roads here; you might be advised to drop off anyone with less mobility then go park and walk back.

    If it is not busy there are a few spaces closer, alternatively just do like the locals do and park on the main road! We have a very relaxed attitude to parking here.

    • Main entrance parking
    • If busy day the main (large) car park is down this road around this bend.
    • Main Entrance: Few parking spaces available
    • Local-style:  just park and go!
  • History and meaning You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    The Roc del Quer is a natural feature; a huge yet tiny part of the 3 km high Pyrenees mountains some 85 million years old formed when the collision of the Iberian tectonic plate with the Eurasian plate - or so the information sign at the platform will tell you.

    Installed last year (2016) after 18 months work the platform and bronze relaxing man by Argentine Miguel Ángel González (who resides now in nearby Lleida, Catalonia/Spain) is a major upgrade to this site, which previously consisted of 2 wooden benches, it is certainly a unique installation in Andorra and the Pyrenees.

    You can now walk into the valley on a cantilevered platform of wood with transparent sections
  • Structure and paths You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  

    Once you get to the platform there is a path down it with a covered structure which affords some shade if needed.

    The path can get slippery, there are handrails. Some warning signs about not carrying kids on your shoulders should be heeded.

    • If you can make it down the paths, you can still get a good view from this area.
    • view over the edge!
    • Looking up from the platform to the shaded covering structure
    • Path down to the viewing platform
    • platform extending out
  • Walking path You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    At the platform, in addition, you can take the circular "camí del cóms" (means Path of Channels); a relatively easy walk of 40mins +/- 120metres in height; interesting features include giant hybrid Scots and black pine trees; and ancient water channels cut into the rock that only exist in this parish.
  • What can you do nearby? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    About halfway up the road to the Mirador del Roc del Quer from Canillo you'll find the Borda Patxeta: a typical Andorran country house which has been converted into a restaurant; where you can stop for breakfast, or feast on delicious grilled meats and all kinds of dishes. Many of the food option are with home produced organic products; including the meats.
